Support for your muscles and your core during a tri is key, and the compression aficionados at Australia based 2XU know this fact well. No strangers to crafting garments that move with you throughout the exhausting phases of the swim, bike, and run legs of a race, 2XU created its Compression Tri Short to keep you cool and supported so you can race your best. Constructed with a blend of SBR Skin X fabric and strategically placed mesh panels, the Compression Tri Short was designed to dry as quickly as possible after you swim, then continuously wick moisture away from your skin as the temperature rises throughout a race. The fabric also uses a compressive fit to support your hardworking glutes, hamstrings, and abductors as you race, while offering UPF 50 protection as you spend hours in harsh sunlight. Two rear pockets give you space to store crucial race nutrition, while the wide waistband supports your core and 2XU's Memory Tech LD chamois keeps you comfortable on the bike without restricting your stride when you step onto the run course.
